  1. Replace the 7600K and its board with a modern platform (either AMD or Intel) and a 6-core or better CPU, sit on everything else. The 1080 ti is still a very relevant card for gaming up to 1440p/60fps in AAA titles and 1440p/144fps in esports, and getting a card that will be a significant improvement over it will eat up at least half your budget by itself.
  2. It's hilarious anybody actually thinks Nvidia cared about getting cards in gamers hands.
  3. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I have no idea. I think they were actually the first Maxwell cards to release, and Nvidia usually releases the high-end cards for a new architecture first and only drops the budget ones months later, so it's doubly strange. There was a GTX 950 too so a "sensible" naming scheme would make the 750/750 ti the 930/940 or maybe the 930/930 ti. Note that in the first version of LTT's video about Nvidia dropping driver support for the 700 series, they forgot the 750 ti is Maxwell and went off on a whole thing about how many people still use them.
  4. 750 and 750 ti are actually Maxwell that just didn't get 900-series model numbers for some reason, not Kepler, so they are still in driver support for now. But he might have a fake 750 ti that is actually an earlier card which is out of support.
  5. Then get used to dealing with poor accuracy to some extent. Like I said, consoles have autoaim for a reason.
  6. You could buy a set of those little rubber extender things for the thumbsticks to give you more leverage. If you're on PC just use a keyboard and mouse for shooters.
  7. There were actually a couple of weirdo Skylake era boards with slots for both DDR3 and DDR4.
  8. Not at all, unless you just wanted to buy the tools and parts and try doing it for fun on a mouse that is basically already "disposable." Unfortunately this issue (and phantom double-clicks) are extremely common across many different brands and models of mouse now because they're all using basically the same switches. If you want to avoid running into this problem in the future, you could look at mice with optical switches (not absolutely immune to these problems but seemingly much less prone to them) or look at some of the mice Asus sells where the switches are actually in sockets
  9. Every time someone asks it makes high GPU prices last a month longer.
  10. As others have mentioned, the heat spreaders on RAM are mostly for looks anyway; even they are pretty much unnecessary. Active cooling for RAM would be a meme. A meme that, of course, someone has actually tried to get people to buy, and of course "someone" here means Corsair: https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Dominator-Platinum-Airflow-CMDAF2/dp/B077455184/
  11. It's bizarre to me how many people hang out on this forum who not only don't watch LMG content but seem to hold Linus and the company in utter contempt.
  12. Wow. Just wow. if I were the guy at that computer store I would be committing sudoku.
  13. Both of those are pretty decent pricing. I would be interested to know which specific MSI B450 board that is. Given your original budget was $200 I would be inclined to go with the first combo. If the 3700X one had a B450 board that would be different but I am somewhat wary of the Asus Prime B350 Plus (pretty low-end first-gen Ryzen chipset board). Your slow RAM will definitely hold performance on Ryzen back to some extent but it isn't catastrophic. Unless you have other applications that will really benefit from 32GB of memory, I would consider running just the 2400mhz pair, and p
